I joined the police in 2007 after a different career in the fitness industry. I decided on this career change because I wanted the opportunity to make a difference and help people.
During my time as a police officer, I have experienced working with many different people through various roles. I have found that preventative work, safeguarding and engaging with young people is where I feel a real sense of having a positive impact.
I am passionate about supporting young people in making positive decisions and developing their knowledge in order to keep themselves safe, particularly those who are in difficult circumstances.
Being a young person is not always easy and as a Schoolbeat Officer, I hope to show young people I work with that the police can be trusted to help and support, should they need it.
I have been a police officer in Gloucestershire Constabulary since 2018. I have been a part of a number of different teams including response, local investigation team and worked with the youth support team.
I joined Schoolbeat in 2022 and since working with young people, helping to educate and be a role model for them, I feel I have found my passion. I’d like the young people in Gloucestershire to feel they can approach me and trust that I will do my best to help them.
Through my role as a Schoolbeat Officer, I hope to help keep young people safe and guide them so that they make good decisions.
I have been serving as a Police Officer in Gloucestershire Constabulary since 2003. I am a mother of three and I’m married to a serving police officer.
I have spent most of my long career on the front line dealing with emergencies and carrying out investigations. Throughout that time, the standout incidents for me are the ones where I’ve worked with children, young persons and teenagers. Being able to help them, support them, keep them from danger and ultimately empower them to make better decisions, is the most rewarding incidents I have ever dealt with.
This led me to join the Schoolbeat Team in 2021, where I happily attend schools in the Gloucester area and deliver our curriculum of informative lessons on topical subjects, crime prevention and personal responsibilities to young people.
It’s wonderful to work alongside the schools to break down the barriers, to gain trust and respect of school age children and the community alike.
I have been a Police Officer since 2009 and have been lucky to be part of the Schoolbeat team since it started in 2018, covering the Cotswolds area.
Five years on and I am still thoroughly enjoying the role – positive relationships have been built and I remain fully motivated for the challenge.
Through the delivery of educational sessions in our schools, we are equipping pupils with the knowledge and support to make informed decisions to help them stay safe and become better adults.
I strongly believe that we are breaking down barriers and gaining the trust and respect of the young people in our communities.
I’ve worked for the Police since 2003 in many different roles serving the public and educating people in keeping safe. From the start of my career, I have had real sense of wanting to help members of the public in keeping safe and reducing their fear of crime.
Many people that turn to crime are also victims of crime themselves. This caught my enthusiasm, especially with young people, and I have worked with many schools and agencies in the local community to build better relationships before joining the Schoolbeat Team.
Many young people are facing challenging issues and are making decisions that can have detrimental consequence to their development into adult life. The work that I complete as a Schoolbeat Officer raises young people’s awareness of those consequences. This gives them the knowledge and understanding of how they can make the right decision and enjoy their pathway to adulthood.
The young are our future and how they are treated and engaged with now can have a real positive impact on their pathway into adulthood.
I have been a police officer since 2007, most of which has been as a front line officer.
I have joined the Schoolbeat team in Stroud, as I want to continue helping members of my community, especially young people. I want to demonstrate that the police are not to be feared and we are approachable and here to help.
As a Schoolbeat officer, I educate our young people on topics that they will be facing as they grow up and support in equipping them to make positive decisions as they progress in life.
Since becoming a Police Officer in 2003, I have taken on many roles. The most rewarding of which is my current position as a Schoolbeat Officer covering the Forest of Dean and parts of Gloucester.
I am passionate about empowering young people with the skills to grow up safely, happy and able to deal with the challenges of life as well as showing them a positive representation of the police.
I have been a Police Officer since 1998. I have the best job in Gloucestershire Police as the Schoolbeat Sergeant.
My role is to support the Schoolbeat team in offering our curriculum to all schools across the whole of the county. I believe that in doing so; we can raise awareness of the current risks and threats to young people with an aim of empowering them to make positive decisions in the future.
